Patrick J. Bernal


Prior to joining the firm in 2012, Patrick was an Associate at a law firm in downtown Manhattan, where he represented insurance carriers in connection with complex, large-exposure claims involving environmental contamination, mass tort litigation, as well as construction-related liabilities.

Recent cases: In October 2014, the Vermont Supreme Court upheld a trial judgment in favor of Patrick’s municipal client in a complex insurance-coverage case. The Court agreed with the firm that the town’s insurer was required to cover the full value of money embezzled from the town by its former treasurer, including the interest that the town had lost from being deprived of its money for many years.

In December 2013, Patrick second-seated a trial, at which a Vermont Superior Court jury awarded a verdict of $1 million to the firm’s clients in an appeal of an eminent domain taking by the Vermont Public Service Board (PSB). The PSB had awarded only $25,000. Press story here.
